97 F350 Bucket seats

I have a 97 F350 regular cab. I removed the bench seat and attempted to put a set of 40 20 40 seats from an extended cab in. These seats do not seem to fit right. Any advice?

They won't fit, you need seats from another regular cab, or a crew cab, or remove your current 40/20/40 from its tracks and mounts, and get yourself a seat pan from a regular cab or crew cab, and bolt it together.

If you had an original 40/20/40 in your truck, then keep the seat pan, wiring harness, and sliders. Unbolt the sliders from the metal frame of the donar seats so that the various bolt holes are exposed on the bottoms of the seats. Then bolt the donar seats up to the old pan and sliders.

If you have a plain old bench seat in your truck, you will have to hunt a seat pan and sliders from a junk yard. You can fabricate your own wiring harness if you can't find one with the other parts. All the wiring harness does is power the lumbar bags. If I recall correctly, there are three bolt holes at the back of the seat on the base and one on the front. I think that means you could probably make different Ford sliders bolt up without any problems.

The pan will be the hardest part to find. Check on ebay. A year ago there was a guy selling everything you need and he had several sets. But he wanted an arm and a leg for the parts.

Good Luck.

I've seen the pan alone go between $200-1000

Thanks for all the advice guys. I did get my seats mounted in the truck. I used two sets of slides used on bench seats for mounting them. I left the center section out for the moment. I would like to find a counsel in the future. It was a lot of screwing around, but I like the results.

I was wondering if you still wanted to part with the seat pan. A friend of mine is trying to put buckets in his crew cab. I am located in Wisconsin.
